A quiet and comfortable hotel.Posted Oct 1, 2014
Pros: See previous box.
Cons: See previous box.
Location: Quiet situation near busy road with plenty of shops and cafes. Very close to Zinkensdamm underground station, trains to all parts of Stockholm.
We really enjoyed our stay and should like to stay there again. The hotel was quiet, the reception staff extremely helpful and the breakfasts excellent. Publicity material should mention that the nearest underground station is Zinkensdamm (not Slussen), as Brannkyrkagatan is a very long road. We found the 'economy' bedroom a bit cramped for 2 people and with hindsight should have opted for one of the more expensive bedrooms.

Nice, clean hotel outside the city centrePosted Sep 3, 2014
Our room was clean but quite small with the slanted ceiling (we were on the top floor). Shower didn't have a door or curtain so our toilet got soaked every time due to the layout of the bathroom. Reception were very friendly and helpful and this place is good value for money probably because it's a few stops on the metro outside the city centre. This was fine though for us as the hotel is 5min walk from the metro stop.

A beautiful hotelPosted Aug 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was super, breakfast delicious and service very helpful. The gardens were beautiful too. The bedroom was rather too hot but it was the weather was hot. We didn't want to have the windows wide open at night as we were on the ground floor with a seating area close by.

An absolute gem of a hotel!Posted Aug 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed here for 3 nights with some family members during while sightseeing in Stockholm. Initially I found it difficult to find a reasonably priced hotel in the area but then I found Hellstans on Hotels.com. The quirky decor is reminiscent of a boutique style hotel and the attention to detail was very impressive. My room on the 4th floor in particular had exposed original beams which added real character. Breakfast was in abundance, very delicious and well attended to. Friendly staff and cleanliness was very good. The hotel is a little walk from the centre if town but there are still many restaurants and shops in the area. It is also very close to a subway station and we found City bikes very useful! A high recommendation from all in our party, great value for money!

Beautiful hotel with great servicePosted Aug 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
I've stayed at this hotel several times - usually for work but this time for pleasure. Wifi access is excellent. The hotel is well-located close to a metro station and within walking distance of Sodermalm's great bars and restaurants. You can also easily walk to the beach and green spaces of neighbouring island Langholmen. Breakfast is good - get there early to avoid the crowds.

I had booked a superior room last December for a birthday vacation for my wife and was expecting a 4 poster bed - when we arrived the room we were given did not have a 4 poster bed - i queried this with reception and was told that although our room did not have a 4 poster bed it was still a superior room - in what way i asked - more superior than the standard room i was told !! - i asked if it was possible to change rooms and was told that the hotel was full but that if a room became available over the 3 nights we were there that they would let us know - the receptionist advsied that they would reduce the cost of the room by €2o a night because of my dissatisfaction - on checking out on the last day i again explained my dissappointment at the room whereupon the same receptionist advsied me that there was a superior room available for the 2nd and 3rd night and that they had tried to let us know - i asked how did he try to let us know and he said that they had called to our room during the day and had tried to ring me. I asked why they had not left a note in the room as clearly we would not be there during the daytime and asked what number they had tried to call - he could not answer - overall i think that was very poor service the hotel itself is nice and in a great loaction to walk into the city or get the metro whilst at the same time being in a residential area with local restaurants and shops
